OSA served as the evaluator for an 18-month REACH Expansion Grant (PI: James Davis, MD). The REACH Expansion seeks to enhance the educational and supportive services to persons with ADRD and their caregivers through the provision of caregiver coaching and education. This project focuses specifically on high-risk patients and caregivers, including individuals who live in rural areas, those who identify as a racial/ethnic minority, or are living alone.
The OSA evaluation team is responsible for designing the evaluation methodology and instruments, conduct analysis and program reporting. The GHS-REACH evaluation aims are to assess whether program objectives were reached and develop tools for program monitoring and quality assurance. This evaluation uses a mixed methods approach, consisting of multiple assessments pre-, during, and post intervention.
